A New Year

A brand new year has begun!  
So excited to welcome 2015; it should be a great year with retirement beginning in May, grand baby number one arriving in June, and a new swimming pool!  

Wrapped up 2014 by celebrating Kendal and Tanner's wedding vow renewal celebration.  They were married exactly one year prior in Colorado and this was their chance to celebrate with all of their family and friends. 

Kendal and Sara have been friends since high school, played LHS soccer together, and were college roommates!  This is a picture of Kendal and her beautiful baby boy Ryker!  
Ryker joined his mom and all of the bridesmaids as they prepared for the ceremony at Sara's apartment.

Funny story, when they all went to the tanning salon the next day, Sara discovered she still had some credits left over from her 2006 prom visit to the same salon!

Kendal lost her dad a year ago and the blue heart on the back of her dress was made from one of his shirts.  What a fitting remembrance of her father's love.

Beautiful friends!

Kendal had each of the bridesmaids select their choice of dress style in shades of blue!  And one of the bridesmaids and her mom sewed the gray wraps for each girl since the ceremony was outside on the patio.

More Gerings celebrating!

Gathering ideas for her own March wedding!

Brody B. joined the fun too!  (why did I not get any other pictures of the Rapps/Burggrafs)
Evan got tapped to fill in as the officiant at the last hour when Tanner's Uncle was unable to make the trip.  Evan did an outstanding job with the ceremony and added just the right amounts of humor! 

Sara did all of the hand lettering for the various signs that personalized the reception venue!

Parents-to-be who walked down the aisle 3.5 years ago!

And early the next morning (or later that same night!) Bobby took these two to the airport for their trip to San Antonio to watch K-State play in the Alamo bowl!
A few pictures from their trip!
